Made a fews more cupcakes. What amazes me about them is how much more difficult they are than sweaters and blouses, Out of The Closet, (pictured right). When I chose the subject matter, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It was just a sweet idea.
With Closet, I just laid out the shapes, painted them in and added the patterns. The painting was more design than picture. Chocolate Mice, with cupcakes, on the other hand, is a picture with solid forms. Spacial depth is an important element. Lighting is a factor, as is the direction of the brush strokes. Anyway, it's not going to be a quicky, but I'm in for the long haul. I'm in fascination with the concept and the format. With two more similar paintings to do,this is going to be a pastry winter.
THE TRIPTYCH AS PLANNED:
